A new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll finds that 49 percent of adults think Obamacare is a bad idea, the highest tally the two new organizations have recorded since a survey taken in March 2010, when the law was passed.
And the opposition is intense. Among the 49 percent who vote thumbs down, 43 percent said they “strongly” hold that view.
Only 37 percent believe Obamacare is a “good idea.” And by a 38-19 percent tally, more people think they will be worse off than better off under Obamacare.
The survey tracks other recent polling, which has also found a startling gap of about 12 percent between those who favor the law and those who don’t.
The latest RealClearPolitics average of Obamacare polls puts opposition the law at just under 53 percent, nearly as high as its ever been since Obama signed it.
The polling suggests that, coupled with the administration’s scandals, Republicans will have plenty of issues going for them as they head in the 2014 midterm elections.
